COP

As Europe's largest network for sustainable building, DGNB is involved in numerous activities at the COP. The aim is to raise awareness for the importance of sustainable building in the context of climate change mitigation and adaptation and to show how this can be implemented in practice.

In 2012, together with the DGNB, a special award for sustainable building was launched.
